Note: for the 2020 assessments, this was built using the 2017 IEA ETP B2DS (Beyond 2°C) scenario, which limits future temperature increases to 1.75°C by 2100. For the 2019 assessments, the 2017 IEA ETP 2DS (2°C Scenario) was used. Therefore the 2020 assessment scenario has a higher ambition than the 2019 assessment scenario.

Companies' ACT Performance Score (average)

The performance scoring measures the degree of alignment with the requirements of a low-carbon economy as measured by the limited set of performance indicators included in the ACT methodology.

The sets of performance indicators and their associated weightings, as well as the associated module weightings, are sector-specific by nature and are therefore presented in the ACT sector methodologies.

Companies' ACT Target Module Score (average)

Targets are the accepted quantitative formalization of company commitments. ACT Target Module (#1 of 9 modules included in the Performance score) assesses company performance on existing targets, timeline of emissions reduction targets and alignment of emissions reduction (scope 1+2 and fleet) targets with climate science.

To assess company targets and emissions trends for quantitative indicators, global emissions scenarios are translated into target pathways at the company level via the Sectoral Decarbonization Approach (SDA).

Low-carbon vehicle share indicator (companies' average)

Low-carbon vehicle share indicator measures the company’s growth in sales of low-carbon vehicles as compared with the annual growth rate required in the sector under a 2°C scenario. This indicator score weights 15% of the total score of module 4 Sold Product Performance (weighting 35% of ACT Auto Performance Score). LCV is a relatively new concept and therefore picking a fixed time interval after which a gap can be identified may be challenging, trend analysis is also relevant.

Fleet emissions pathway (companies' average)

A measure of the alignment of the company’s sold WTW fleet emissions intensity with its decarbonization pathway. The indicator will identify the gap in the reporting year between the company’s new product performance and that required by the decarbonization pathway as a percentage, which is expressed as the company’s ‘action gap’.

This indicator is where the principal ‘action gap’ between the company’s actions and the benchmark is assessed.
